Selected overseas Filipino workers (OFW) went home to their family not only with their Balikbayan boxes but also with prizes they won from NAIA raffle, groceries, loot bags, a brand new TV and a P50k cash prize.
About 1,500 OFWs were welcomed back by Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Silvestre Bello III and Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) administrator Hans Leo Cacdac at NAIA this four in the morning. The OFWs came from Kuala Lumpur, Abu Dhabi, Taipei, Doha, and Kuwait.
Most of them came home to the country to celebrate New Years' Eve with their family.
Three OFWS, namely Rafael Dela Cruz Marasigan, Jinarda Bonifacio Vagallon At Antonio Rempillo Mendoza Jr from Kuala Lumpur, Abu Dhabi at Kuwait, respectively, will bring P50k cash to their family after their names were drawn in the "New Year's OFW Salubong" raffle promo by DOLE and OWWA.
Ina Marites Piz Hablado, Veronica Evangelista Fernandez at Jomily Siobal Naniong each won a brand new 32 inches TV.
They are not the only winners for today. Some of them won baskets of groceries and loot bags containing various assorted items.
"New Year's OFW Salubong" is an annual event to give gratitude and happiness to the OFWs who are considered as the "new heroes" of our country.
Last Thursday, a Jeddah-based OFW won a brand new Renault car in a Christmas raffle draw at NAIA.
